3.9. Textbook Information

Textbook Costs 

The cost for textbooks really varies from course to course.

The average is about $100 per course.


Paying For Books

You will be required to pay for your books upon ordering them online.  If you have financial aid you will still need to pay for them up front and then fill out a cash release form and turn it in to financial aid to be reimbursed.  You may find this form online via the portal at my.cuw.edu in the Forms Repository under the Resources tab. Search in the Business Office Forms category.


When to Buy Books

You will need to purchase your textbooks right away for your Online course(s) since (in general) you only have four weeks from registration in which to turn in your first assignment.


Book(s) On The Way? 

Please contact our CUW Bookstore to check on your textbook order.  They may be reached at 262-243-4349 or by email at bookstore@cuw.edu
For books rented from the Online Office, contact us by by phone at 800-665-6564, by email, or visiting the Online CUW Site.


Book Return

Books for Online Accelerated Learning classes are to be returned to the Mequon campus within one week of completion of your course.

In the event that materials are not returned, a charge will be placed on your account. Materials not returned within 30 days will be ineligible for a reversal and the book charges will stand.

You can either drop them off in the Mequon Accelerated Learning office or mail them to the address on the front of the book.

An instructional sheet is included in the original packaging with the address for shipping.

Books should be returned to:
